About the Vision of Hope Gala
- The Vision of Hope Gala was founded by Yolanda in 2005 after the couple watched an episode of “The Apprentice”. Yolanda will never forget Donald Trump telling the contestants “never give up and follow your dreams”.
- Our mission is to share the message of hope, to inspire other people with vision loss to follow their dreams and for society to embrace people with vision loss as capable individuals in all aspects of life.
- The annual Vision of Hope Gala takes place on the third Saturday of February. Each year, hundreds of people enjoy delicious food, great entertainment and a fabulous auction.
Since its inception, the event has raised more than $175,000 for CNIB. CNIB is a registered charity, passionately providing community-based support, knowledge and a national voice to ensure people who are blind or partially sighted have the confidence, skills and opportunities to fully participate in life.
